The Australia Council for the Arts
unveils a revitalised cultural home for Australia on the international stage.
Designed by renowned Australian
architecture practice Denton Corker Marshall, the granite-clad building is the
first 21st century pavilion in Venice’s Giardini della Biennale. Conceived as a
white box within a black box, the building combines a singular, contemporary
aesthetic to appear almost like a sculptural object sensitively set into the
historic landscape of the Giardini. Operable panels, that open and close
according to exhibition needs, give a changing character to the pavilion both
externally and internally, providing a myriad of options for exhibiting
The space will be inaugurated by
Australia’s artist representative Fiona Hall. Her work, which encompasses a
range of media from sculpture to video art, will create a multisensory
experience of sights and sounds with her installation titled Wrong Way Time.
The 56th International Art Exhibition
runs from 9 May to 22 November 2015.
